Where to shoot your session at?

bridal-381Mcfaddin_ward_houseBridal or Engagement Sessions

Most venues won’t allow you to shoot your session on their property unless your wedding is planned at their venue but here are a few that I’ve know to allow the public to shoot at their locations. Fees will vary. Please call to obtain more information. The #1 place to shoot is a private home, it being owned by a friend or family member. #2 your wedding venue. #3 parks, museums, gardens.
